    Pulmonary fat embolism in a preterm infant receiving Intralipid intravenously is described. Serum obtained at the time of clinical deterioration agglutinated Intralipid. This coincided with the onset of septicaemia and with a raised serum C reactive protein concentration. Subsequent clinical improvement was associated with reduction in the C reactive protein concentration and nonagglutination of Intralipid.
